we are Africa Uplifted

Africa Uplifted enriches the lives of the people of Sierra Leone by promoting basic wellness, removing barriers to education, satisfying essential physical needs, nurturing spiritual development, and creating economic opportunities.

Africa Uplifted is a non-profit public charity qualified under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Africa Uplifted was established in 2011 as a successor to The Lance and Julie Burma Foundation.

the problem

Access to healthcare in rural Sierra Leone is limited due to geographic and economic barriers. As a result, many children are born in primitive conditions with limited prenatal care

the solution

Africa Uplifted built and subsidizes a community health center in Manonkoh, Sierra Leone which has served as a birthing center for over 400 children.
